DIY Chocolate Bark

I love making chocolate bark! There’s chocolate and there’s peppermint – it’s the perfect holiday combo, am I right?! It’s so simple to make and you’ll impress all your friends. All you need is a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, a bag of white chocolate chips and a container of Kencraft peppermint chips or crushed candy canes.

First pour the chips into two separate microwave safe bowls. Microwave each bowl for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Do not overcook the chocolate. Not all of the chips will be completely melted when you take them out of the microwave after the 2nd heating, but that’s ok! Just stir until they are.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Pour your melted semi-sweet chocolate on the sheet, spread it around and then pour the white chocolate on top. Now, for the fun part! Take a fork or spoon and swirl the chocolates together to get a pretty marbleized look. My little helper is a stirring expert!

Then take the crushed candy cane and sprinkle all over the top of the chocolate.

After your satisfied with your creation, place it in the fridge to harden. This will take a few hours. Once it’s hard you can take it off of the paper or foil and break it into chunks. Place it in a cello bag and tie it with a piece of twine and a cute tag (this tag is from the amazing Inkberry).

All wrapped up and ready to go!

Chocolate bark can be eaten as is or you can melt a few pieces in hot milk for a seriously delicious hot chocolate!

 

Enjoy!
